A desk with compact dimensions that is easy to fold so that it takes up very little space. When folded open you will see a screen with keyboard. The computer is hidden in the bottom part. There is also more storage space in the lower part. This is accessible with doors on both sides. LED lighting is included in the cabinet that can be turned on and off with a switch. The flip is automatically muted when opened.

DIY: foldable computer desk

The furniture was put together in a few weekends. First, all MDF parts were assembled according to the drawing. Most parts are assembled with long chipboard screws when the screws are not in sight. Other parts including the betonplex is attached with wooden dowels and wood glue to the MDF connected. As a result, no construction holes are visible on the outside and that makes the furniture look sleek. The bottom doors are mounted with concealed hinges. The flap is secured with damper hinges and guides. The MDF is painted white with a paint roller. The LED lighting was purchased from Ikea.

Custom made computer desk

When folded, the furniture is 125.0 cm high, 80.0 cm wide and 20.0 cm deep. When the desk is unfolded, the depth increases to a total of 70.0 cm.
